OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

During my evaluation of the Fuji X100T, I decided to take my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark I (Wow! That’s rather cumbersome). As I walked along the sidewalk, there was a hawk perched on the telephone line. I took a few shots, then noticed that as I walked a little further, the sun could be seen above the treetops, so I framed the featured shot. At the time, I was wishing that I had brought along a longer lens, but then…

We met a few weeks ago in Boone. She looked somewhat familiar. I was immediately attracted. For the past 7 days, I’ve spent time with her. We’ve gone on long walks, hung out in Asheville, and various other places. She’s pretty much been my constant companion for a week. Vanessa got to meet her, too, and agreed that she was attractive, in an old school kind of way. The she that I’m talking about, in this case, is the Fuji…

A couple of weeks ago, I watched my first-ever Apple product announcement. It took them about 3 hours to say what, in my opinion, could have comfortably been said in half that time. That said, I do understand that there “had to be” speeches, etc, to hype the launch. Got to keep the buying public needing, wanting, and loving your product. I popped in and out, listening here and there. Finally, when they got to the iPhone 7, I was…

Growing up in Akron, Ohio, we had a mail carrier for our neighborhood named Mike. From the time that I was old enough to recognize people, until I left home, I believe, Mike was our guy. Every Christmas, my mother would give him a Christmas card and $20 or $30 as a gift. Mike was the regular guy, but unpredictable. Some days we would get our mail at 11:00 AM, other times, 6:00 PM. We just didn’t know when he…

The other day, I mentioned a particular camera road that I’d been down. Then, I discovered that, lo and behold, there was another road that I’d been down, too – the 1″ sensor road. Anyone remember the Nikon 1 V1? That was Nikon’s early 1″ sensor camera. The current version is the V3. I wrote about it here. I rented one, gave it a whirl, and decided that, though I liked the image quality, it just wasn’t pocket-sized enough and…

I know! I know! Usually it’s chicken & waffles and, no, I didn’t make a typo – though, if I had, that would have been a pretty egregious typo! 🙂 Sunday morning, Vanessa and I got up, went for a nice hike in the park, put in some miles and some “stairs”, or elevation, came back, got cleaned up and headed out to breakfast. We decided to go to iHop. As we were fairly early, 9:30 or so, we beat…
